‚ÄčAmber 14 currently runs alongside AmberTools 15. Unfortunately the
meaning of "Amber 14" is a little ambiguous given the staggered release
schedule of Amber and AmberTools. I suspect that Sanjib is actually
running AmberTools 15 alongside a copy of Amber 14.

So if Sanjib *is* using AmberTools 14, the best approach is to use
"./update_amber --upgrade" to upgrade to AmberTools 15, and then Plumed
should just work.

All the best,
